Excellent quiz, I spotted two spelling mistakes. 'asian' in the header should be capitalized, 'it' should be 'its' in the rhino hint. 'Raccoon' is also a more common spelling than 'racoon'.

I'ld rather change the "horn which is used for traditional medicine" into "is believed to have medicinal value" , an idea that has no scientific probative value at all .

In fact , the rhinoceros is driven to extinction through the Asian idee-fixe as that the horn would have a viagra-effect .

Sick .

I know its being hunted to extinction, and i know it doesn't have real medicinal value, however my statement remain accurate as they do use it for tradicional medicine even though it doesnt actually work.

Either description works in my opinion
